This is a regular stop for us, and they never disappoint. Prices are not cheap but are reasonable. No plates as you buy the BBQ by the pound. The moist brisquit is always one of our favorites.

Nothing fancy, but just adds to the experience. You order at a counter and take your food to a seat. Have a choice of the brisket cut, lean or regular. Either is very good. BBQ sauce good as well.

A quick, quality meal in a very casual atmosphere. The Moist Brisket, Jalapeno Sausage and ribs were all good but the brisket was the star. Recommend trying a little of everything and sharing.

I have no idea--have you written to the owners or asked at the restaurant? We don't live in state and were just passing through.
